Can't add repo for source files


I'm trying to add a repo for non-oss-src through YaSt
But I seem to be doing something wrong

Here's what I entered:

HTTP button selected

Server download.opensuse.org

Directory on Server /distribution/11.0/repo/src-oss/suse/src/

I keep getting cannot connect to host error

Thanks

I think the Directory on Server should terminate with the src-oss part, that is
Code:
/distribution/11.0/repo/src-oss/

you will need to download the src.rpm's and create your own local repo. just place the rpm's in a directory and add it through yast.

I finally got the repo to load with:

/distribution/11.0/repo/src-oss/suse/

I think the trick is to make sure that the directory contains the /repo subdirectory.

I thought that would get it, but now the package manager won't pick up any of the packages in the repo.

I don't understand

that is because that directory is missing all the files that tell opensuse what is in the repo
